ASUS GL12 overview

  • 1Description

The Republic of Gamers Strix GL12 Gaming Desktop from Asus is designed with the performance and aesthetics in mind for gamers. Specs-wise, it's equipped with a 3.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8700 six-core processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, 16GB of Intel Optane memory, and a 1TB HDD. Intel Optane memory acts as cache to increase system responsiveness, speeding up boot and application load times. Thanks to its dedicated GPU, you'll be able to play graphically demanding games at high resolutions. To improve this system further you can install additional RAM, up to a max of 64GB, as well as storage drives for extra storage.

Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or with its Gigabit Ethernet LAN jack for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Moreover, it has HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort outputs that you can use to set up your own multi-monitor configuration. Other integrated features include customizable RGB LED lighting, a SuperMulti DVD drive, a 2-in-1 media card reader, as well as multiple USB and audio ports. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home. This system also comes with a USB keyboard and mouse so you can get started gaming as soon as possible.

Intel Optane Technology
Intel Optane memory serves as a fast cache for a hard drive or a solid-state drive to increase performance and decrease loading times. It stores commonly used data and programs, which allows the system to access the information more quickly than from a drive using the SATA interface. Optane memory's impact on a system's performance will be more noticeable with a hard drive rather than a solid-state drive. A larger capacity Optane drive increases the amount of applications that can be accelerated; however, since it only stores frequently used files, infrequently used files and applications may fall out of the cache over time.
Asus Aura Sync RGB LED Lighting
Thanks to Asus Aura Sync RGB LED lighting, you can choose from over 16 million colors and plenty of lighting effects such as breathing, color cycle, rainbow, and more to customize your system's aesthetics to fit your style.
Hot-Swap SSD Tray
Designed for easy access, the hot-swap SSD tray located behind the front panel lets you easily swap out 2.5" drives whenever you need to.
This system hold up to two HDDs, one SSD, and two exhaust fans. Add components whenever you want for more storage and cooling capabilities.
Aegis III
Asus Aegis III is a system monitoring software that you can use to track fan speeds, CPU and memory usage, as well as download and upload status. You'll also be able to activate automatic overclocking, record and edit gameplay videos, and share them online.
Sonic Studio
Asus Sonic Studio provides you with a clear and immersive listening experience using a combination of audio software and hardware. Use it to adjust audio settings and even tweak in-game voice settings.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
